How Liars Wreck a Country

Last year, Forbes concluded that “only 16% of adults in the U.S. say they have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in newspapers, and just 11% said the same for television news.”  Anyone confronting these stats must conclude that our media are deeply incompetent or crooked or both.

The New York Times announced a few years ago that defeating Trump was the important thing.  They gave themselves a free pass to lie all they want.  How can they now reclaim their honor or their usefulness?

Real journalists, when they hear an assertion, immediately try to determine whether the assertion is true or false.  This is also what scientists do.  It’s honest, valuable work.

Unfortunately, our liberal journalists do not care about true or false.  When they hear an assertion, they try to determine whether it will help their agenda…their narrative. 

If it won’t help, they know they must attack the assertion, typically by declaring it debunkedfake news, or misinformation.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, in The Gulag Archipelago, said, “And the lie has, in fact, led us so far away from a normal society that you cannot even orient yourself…”

Might the DOJ bring charges against its own?

With all of the handwringing and ado under Pelosi to formally charge those that refused to provide testimony or documents to the unselect committee, is it possible that those in the FBI that are commanded by the house to provide documents but refuse to do so will be charged as well? Seems to be yet another hypocritical Democrat DOJ situation in the making but this is overt denial to provide evidence of Biden’s past crimes. It’s interesting we don’t hear the typical squawking from the left about no one is above the law.

Corruption meets corruption

Having to endure political campaign ads again already, I can’t help but reminisce about two of the most corrupt Virginia Senate allies now battling each other for the newly redrawn 18th. Both campaign about “taking on Governor Youngkin” or “protecting Obamacare from MAGA republicans” like they have any say in it but neither points out massive corruption of the other. Here are some cherished memories to enjoy with a glass of wine and a sense of humor knowing that their desired redistricting left only one with a seat. Who will it be, Wheezy or Sleezy?

Like father like son.

And the worse part is their local prosecutorial connections refuse to hold them accountable. Now why would that be?

Climate in perspective

Temperatures over the last 8000 years

Watch the video and then think about what we are doing.

We are panicking because we are warmer than the most miserable period in known history, Civilization developed under temperatures 2.5to3°C warmer than the “pre-industrial” baseline, we are 1.2°C above that baseline right now.

Even if the estimates in future rise were right(and they are double reality) we would just be reaching the best times humanity ever experienced.

There is really nothing so wonderful about the depths of the Little Ice Age that we should not celebrate having it behind us.

Will the truth finally be revealed?

A new whistle-blower claims Biden himself was invoved in a criminal money making scheme through policy bribes while VP. I think we all have known this for a very long time but it was covered up by complicit government agencies. Will it now be revealed what con artists the Biden family truly are?

What China Is Really Playing at in Ukraine

Source: The Unz Review.

It is eye-opening in a modest way to think of Ukraine as a way station in China’s Belt and Road Initiative, a connecting point for trade between Europe and Asia. The writer opines that this is the explanation for Xi Jinping’s recent conversation with Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

We begin to see, as well, that the U.S. administration’s interest in Ukraine has multiple dimensions, of which Russia’s relationship with Europe is only one.

I believe the U.S. should encourage China’s BRI. It or something like it is inevitable in the long run because there are so many potential benefits. Among them are the possibility of a better developed and more prosperous world. We should want this.

She’s Got a Point

So Riley Gaines, just like most other female athletes, insists on a fair playing field that does not include biological males participating in women’s sports. Seems perfectly reasonable to me. However, there are a few females who want to promote fantasy land into female athletics. Problem is these same women would never make the cut in male athletic programs for obvious reasons if they tried to so why isn’t the obvious reason males shouldn’t play female sports obvious? What drama…
